Throughout listening to this album, it kept occurring to me, "Is this really Nigerian?" It sounded like a 70's soul album out of, say, Philly. Not much about it struck me as Nigerian, or as funk for that matter. That's not to say it's not a good album; it is, just not quite what I expected. The lyrics are in English, and the instrumentation is very Western (for lack of a better word). There are some very strong tracks that sound like they could have been radio hits back in the day. There are also a few slower, unremarkable ballad-ish numbers, like many of the soul albums of its time. While I expected something a little further out there, what I found is a decent album right up the soul/pop alley.

I picked this CD up a week or so ago and it has quickly become a permanent resident of our CD player. This music high-energy, funky, and fun from start to finish. Absolutely outstanding. Also there is a great booklet included with photos and essays on the evolution of the genre. I can't recommend this disc enough!

Great Afropop reissues are appearing like mushrooms after a rain these days but Brand New Wayo stands out. It's fun, pop-y, and surprisingly durable. One year later, I still enjoy virtually every track. I landed back at Amazon only because I was hoping that the label had come out with another gem I could pick up. Fingers crossed.....

......but they sort of warn you going in. This is straight ahead disco with very little african feeling. If that's what you want, it's a solid 3 stars, if not, avoid.
